Selecting a file

4 posts in this topic

I have been trying to create a routine to select a file from a list of files.

I can't get it to return the selected file name to AutoIt.

; includes
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <file.au3>
AutoItSetOption("TrayIconDebug", 1) ;0-off
; Set so that tray displays current line number
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Set_Exit")

DIM $FileList
; create the GUI.
GUICreate("File List/View Demo", 614, 370)
; set the font for the GUI
GUISetFont(9, 400, -1, "MS Sans Serif")
; create buttons.
$Status = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 30, 120, 200, 20, BitOR($SS_SUNKEN, $SS_CENTER))
$btnList = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Select A File", 10, 330, 75, 25)
$listbox = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 150, 330)
; create the right edit.
$myedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($FileList, 175, 10, 220, 345, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $ES_READONLY + $ES_MULTILINE + $WS_VSCROLL)
; set the edit colors.
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
; set focus to the edit.
GUICtrlSetState($listbox, $GUI_FOCUS)
GUISetState()
            Get_Files()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case    $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $msg = $btnList
            $a_Sel = _GUICtrlEditGetSel ($myedit)
            If ($a_Sel == $EC_ERR) Then
                GUICtrlSetData($Status, "Error getting sel positions")
            ElseIf (IsArray($a_Sel)) Then
                $FileSelected = StringMid(GUICtrlRead($myedit), $a_Sel[1] + 1, ($a_Sel[2] - $a_Sel[1]) + 1)
                $FileSelectedT = StringStripWS($FileSelected, 2)
                GUICtrlSetData($Status, $FileSelectedT)
           Else
                GUICtrlSetData($Status, "")
            EndIf
    GUIDelete()
    ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

Func Get_Files()
    $FileList = _FileListToArray ("C:\Program Files\QuickBooks Pro 2004", "*.iif", 1) ; list files to an array.
    If (Not IsArray($FileList)) Or (@error = 1) Then
        MsgBox(262208, "Folder Error", "No Files\Folders Found.   ", 5)
        Return
    EndIf
    GUICtrlSetData($listbox, "") ; set list to empty.
    For $x = 1 To $FileList[0] ; for loop to place the files in the list.
        GUICtrlSetData($listbox, (StringTrimRight($FileList[$x], 4)) & "|", 1) ; string trim the last 4 characters ( .iif )
    Next
EndFunc
Func Set_Exit ()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Set_Exit

Could someone please help me figure out what I am doing wrong?

Thank you,

Thank you for the suggestion.

I added some notes below to show what is in the fields...

Try this.... NOT TESTED

; includes
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <file.au3>

#include <GUIListBox.au3> ; added*************************
AutoItSetOption("TrayIconDebug", 1) ;0-off
; Set so that tray displays current line number
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Set_Exit")

DIM $FileList
; create the GUI.
GUICreate("File List/View Demo", 614, 370)
; set the font for the GUI
GUISetFont(9, 400, -1, "MS Sans Serif")
; create buttons.
$Status = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 30, 120, 200, 20, BitOR($SS_SUNKEN, $SS_CENTER))
$btnList = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Select A File", 10, 330, 75, 25)
$listbox = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 150, 330)
; create the right edit.
$myedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($FileList, 175, 10, 220, 345, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $ES_READONLY + $ES_MULTILINE + $WS_VSCROLL)
; set the edit colors.
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000000)
; set focus to the edit.
GUICtrlSetState($listbox, $GUI_FOCUS)
GUISetState()
            Get_Files()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

                $FileSelected = StringMid(GUICtrlRead($myedit), $a_Sel[1] + 1, ($a_Sel[2] - $a_Sel[1]) + 1)

;Notes:   When I run this:
;            $FileSelected = Blank
;            $a_Sel[1]      = 0
;            $a_Sel[2]      = 0


                $FileSelectedT = StringStripWS($FileSelected, 2)

    GUIDelete()
    ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

Func Get_Files()
    $FileList = _FileListToArray ("C:\Program Files\QuickBooks Pro 2004", "*.iif", 1) ; list files to an array.
    If (Not IsArray($FileList)) Or (@error = 1) Then
        MsgBox(262208, "Folder Error", "No Files\Folders Found.   ", 5)
        Return
    EndIf
    GUICtrlSetData($listbox, "") ; set list to empty.
    For $x = 1 To $FileList[0] ; for loop to place the files in the list.
        ;GUICtrlSetData($listbox, (StringTrimRight($FileList[$x], 4)) & "|", 1) ; string trim the last 4 characters ( .iif )
        _GUICtrlListBox_AddString ($listbox, (StringTrimRight($FileList[$x], 4))) ; string trim the last 4 characters ( .iif )

; Notes:  The files do show in the box.  The file I select doesn't come back into the script.


    Next
EndFunc
Func Set_Exit ()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Set_Exit

Thank you for your help.

I have figured it out. This is the working code:

; Select a file from a list of files
;
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <GuiList.au3>
#include <file.au3>
AutoItSetOption("TrayIconDebug", 1) ;0-off
; Set so that tray displays current line number
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Set_Exit")

GUICreate("File List", 220, 370)
GUISetFont(9, 400, -1, "MS Sans Serif")
$listbox = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 10, 200, 330)
Get_Files()
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $msg = $listbox
            $FileSelected = _GUICtrlListGetText($listbox, _GUICtrlListSelectedIndex($listbox))
            If ($FileSelected == $LB_ERR) Then
                MsgBox(16, "Error", "Unknown error from _GUICtrlListGetText")
            Else
                MsgBox(4096, "Test", "File Selected - " & $FileSelected)
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
    EndSelect
WEnd

Func Get_Files()
    $FileList = _FileListToArray("C:\Program Files\QuickBooks Pro 2004", "*.iif", 1) ; list files to an array.
    If (Not IsArray($FileList)) Or (@error = 1) Then
        MsgBox(262208, "Folder Error", "No Files\Folders Found.   ", 5)
        Return
    EndIf
    GUICtrlSetData($listbox, "") ; set list to empty.
    For $x = 1 To $FileList[0] ; for loop to place the files in the list.
        GUICtrlSetData($listbox, (StringTrimRight($FileList[$x], 4)) & "|", 1) ; string trim the last 4 characters ( .iif )
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>Get_Files
Func Set_Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Set_Exit
